I think it's wishful thinking.
Looks like a late post ....

I may have to uninstall the plug in since its causing Vegas to crash on render and other weird anomolies. Really weird ones too.

Do you mean that even unused it may be the root cause of Vegas crashes ? Really odd... I have nothing like that here (BCC7 and FBMN).
Frederic Baumann wrote on 5/27/2011, 1:30 PM

I have sent you an email to ask more details about your environment, and the crashes you get. Please send me this information, I would really like to investigate, reproduce the bug and fix it, if it happens to actually come from the plugin.

Best regards,

I did get your email and I'm going to reinstall Vegas 10c, which I think is a pain to do. But I guess I must. I'll report my findings to you as soon as I can.
ReneH wrote on 5/28/2011, 12:05 PM

Wouldn’t you know! I uninstalled Vegas Pro 10d and reinstalled 10c and the plugin works like it should!

I will keep using the plugin and I will be buying it soon.

A real solid, extremely useful tool for Vegas Pro.

I'm in the middle of a very important project, and could really use a good WB filter, as your highly praised filter seems to be! I just downloaded the evaluation version, but haven't installed it yet. I'm running WIN7 Ultimate 64 bit, and run both 32 and 64 bit versions of Vegas Pro 10d.

Do I dare to install the filter - or is there an unresolved issue with the filter in VP 10d that can risk my work, even if I don't use the filter withing the project, but just install it?

I cannot risk my project, so do I dare to install the filter? I'm mainly editing HD material (GoPro, AVCHD and HDV).. Is there a way to avoid the known issue?

Mine is in 10d 32 and 64 bit. Did not have any problems. Vista 64 bit ultimate.

No problems here on XP-SP3 32bit... and 10.0d.

I'm having no issues with Fred's CC s/w. But if you have any doubts 'cos of your present project then go with your concerns and DON'T install it until you've finished your present work. I'd hate, for what ever reason, you had to come and report back here some tragic issue!

No, wait until you've finished.

I've had no problems with Win 7, 10.0d 64bit.

I'll also add that this FX is a significant improvement over the Sony WB (it works better) and the Sony Color Corrector (don't have to futz with hi/mid/low). It just does a great job.

Here are some news about the issue mentioned above -- appearing in some cases with 10d, but never with 10c, and this with various OFX plugins, not only FBmn's.

I did contact the SCS support regarding this when it happened. In the end they transmitted the query to a SCS team which I understand to be the video plug-in development experts one.

And I have just received a status from them on this problem: it is a bug in the application, not in the plug-in.

By the way, I would like to thank my contact in this team, especially for his reactivity, the accuracy of his answers, and the time he spent to analyze the problem.

Hello Frédéric,

I assume by bug in the application, they mean Vegas 10.0d. Correct?

Does anyone know if this OFX bug was fixed with Vegas 10e? I'm a bit hesitant to install these fx in the midst of a project due to the trouble mentioned above, but I'm very interested in trying these plugins.

CClub, I've been using the white balance plug-in in 10.0(e) 64-bit with no problems at all.

Richard Jones wrote on 7/19/2011, 6:12 AM
Yes, no problems for me either (in Vegas 10e 64-bit on Windows 7).

Grazie wrote on 7/19/2011, 10:49 AM
Ditto, no issue.


CClub wrote on 7/19/2011, 1:14 PM
Just purchased both of this company's plugins... thanks for the quick responses above. Really liking them so far. One question: The default color space is HSV, but I'm always working in RGB. Are people switching the fx color space to HSV if your other media are RGB color space?
Grazie wrote on 7/19/2011, 1:59 PM
I understand from Frederic that this is not something available due to how Vegas works. And that being so, I can't see how that makes anybody switching away from RGB. Maybe others wish to comment. Personally, I'd prefer it would stay put on RGB by default.


Shield wrote on 9/26/2011, 9:44 AM
Any problem with using HSV to pick colors? I work in RGB too though. I'm confused.
Frederic Baumann wrote on 9/26/2011, 2:49 PM

I am Frederic, the developer of the plug-ins.

Picking colors can be done regardless of the active color model, because the color is actually picked from the original source, as stored in the event file, which is RGB.

The OFX standard graphical user interface proposes the user to manually change the color settings in one of the HSL/HSV/RGB color models, and this only really matters if you change the 3 components of the color manually - not if you just pick the color with the eyedropper.

As mentioned above, the user interface is coming from the OFX framework provided by Vegas (so it will be the same what ever the OFX plugin you use - FBmn Software's or others). I have suggested to Sony that they might let people select a default color model, to be proposed by every OFX plugins, they have acknowledged reception of my proposal but I don't have any commitment about what is going to be done so far.

By the way, the plug-ins are now available with GPU acceleration - you may check this page for more information.

Hope this helps (please let me know otherwise), and best regards,
Frédéric -
